I love teaching at Oakland! This is my first year to teach 5th grade. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade in the past nine years. When I am not teaching I am spending time with my husband and 2 children. I also enjoy reading books in the summer and hanging out at the baseball/softball field.

Class Dojo is my main source of communication with parents.  You can also reach me by email or phone.  

Homework assignments will be posted on dojo. There will also be a specific place for them to put there homework in their O.W.L. binder.

All students will use a binder to help with organization between classes. Binders will have a pencil pouch, clear plastic homework sleeve, and loose leaf paper.  The front pocket should be checked for papers that need to return to school. The back pocket is for graded work that has been returned.

Check PowerSchool weekly for an updated list of your child's grades and any missing assignments that they may have.

  • Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

    • Work Ethic
    • Integrity
    • Self-discipline
    • Determination
    • Optimism
    • Motivation
